The CPC Certificate offers you the opportunity to demonstrate that you have reached the required standards to work professionally in the freight logistics industry and is recognised nationally and internationally.
To gain the CPC Certificate, you must pass four exams – Modules 1, 2 and 3 and Module 4, which is a case study.
The first three modules cover the essential management skills required to run a haulage business, and module 4 is a case study, based on a real-life scenario.
The CPC Certificate is organised by the Transport Training Services Ltd (TTS). TTS is a Registered Training Organisation with the New Zealand Qualifications Authority (NZQA) and is accredited by the Institute of Logistics and Transport (ILT).
The CPC Certificate is recognised by the Ministry of Transport in New Zealand and is also recognised by the International Road Transport Union (IRU).

There are a few ways to get your CPC certificate. The most common way is to take a CPC course through an accredited institution, like a community college or vocational school.

Driver CPC is short for “Driver Certificate of Professional Competence”. The EU passed the Driver CPC EU Directive in 2003. This affects all professional LGV and PCV drivers. For new drivers it introduces a new initial qualification, the Driver CPC, which increases the level of knowledge that drivers need before they can drive.
All drivers, new and existing, now have to undertake 35 hours of training every five years to ensure that their Driver CPC remains valid. This is known as Periodic Training.
Periodic Training is designed to confirm, and expand on, the existing knowledge and skills of each driver to ensure that they continue to be safe, courteous and fuel-efficient drivers.
This will also enable drivers to keep up-to-date with ever changing regulations and to benefit from training throughout their whole career.
The simple answer is “No”, unless drivers are covered by one of the exemptions, see “Are my Drivers Affected”.
Our courses are competively priced with significant savings for those booking a 5 day (35 hour) course, to complete their renewal requirements in a one week block.
There are also further discounts for Group Bookings and for Organisations booking more than 50 driver days of training at one time. Costs include the fee for registering all training provided on the national Driver CPC Recording and Evidencing Database. Please call or email us for details of discounts available.

You do not need to pass the Driver CPC Part 1 theory test before you book Part 2.
If you’re re-qualifying contact DVSA to book Parts 2 and 4.
You’ll receive a Driver Qualification Card (DQC) which you must carry with you whenever you’re driving an HGV.
If you’re already a professional driver, you may have ‘acquired rights’ to the CPC (see GOV.UK link below) if you got your vocational licence (C, C1, C+E and C1+E) before 10 September 2009.
Having acquired rights does not exempt you from periodic training.
All professional HGV drivers must complete at least 35 hours of approved periodic training every 5 years.
Periodic training covers various aspects of professional driving and is delivered by independent training bodies.
What’s covered in your training is up to you and your employer, but it might include:
One day’s training every year is ideal. It allows you to respond to each year’s priorities for your own continuing professional development and your employer’s changing business needs.
It can severely impact business planning and keep you off the road if too much of your training is left to the end of your card’s validity period. You also might not be able to find a trainer if the demand is high.
It is illegal to drive professionally if you fail to complete your 35 hours of periodic training by the deadline.
